What is a turtle with black spots on the bottom of the shell?
The turtle that has black spots under the shell is a red-eared slider turtle. It is so named because of the red dash that appears around their ears.
Could be normal development of coloration. Some Sliders get black spots on their shell naturally. Could be normal development of coloration.

Your turtle has little black spots on his shell one already died from the spots on his shell is he sick is he dying is he too old he is a painted turtleand no he is not literaly painted?
this could be a sign of fungus or shell rot starting , to be sure find a vet that specializes in reptiles, most vets don't know much about this. also antibiotics can be prescribed. i work at a large pet store and have one with shell rot it is a long procedure to get them healthy. I am going on 7 months and and finally seeing his shell looking better.
